2016 Sister's Run Bethlehem’s Block Barossa Cabernet Sauvignon

The Collective Review

It’s no secret that we at The Wine Collective are smitten with Elena Brookes. She constantly amazes us with her work at Dandelion and Heirloom vineyards. She shines down on the Australian wine landscape like a guiding light.

When making wine, it's all about understanding your customer. And Elena gets it. She makes wines that people love. Wines of heart and soul, that simply taste GOOD. No excessive oak or harsh tannins. Just a whole lot of flavour at a ridiculous price.

This Barossa Cabernet comes from the Bethlehem block, right smack bang in the center of the Barossa wine-growing area and apart from a solid 94 points from James Halliday it also picked up gold at the Melbourne International Wine Competition 2017.

Tasting Notes

A perfect Cabernet entry. Alert bright fruit. Direct, full and fine and precise Cabernet softness. Rich mouth filling soft fruit, especially cedar and cassis. Juicy round blackberry sweetness, and red currant tartness tempered with some taut but typical Cabernet tannin. This is a wine for grilled lamb burgers or steaks done medium-rare.

Winemakers Note

The Bethlehem Block is located in the heart of the Barossa, and this Cabernet is grown by vigneron Jesse Auricht.
